The Topics:
Is Google TV Coming?

The New York Times has reported that a "Google TV" platform is in the works, from Intel, Google, Sony and Logitech. It will run on Atom-powered set-top boxes, and Logitech is developing remote controls. The platform will be opened to third-party developers to write their own plug-ins, as they have for Android. Is this for real?

HTC Squares Off With Apple

Two weeks after Apple filed suit against HTC for patent infringement, HTC has said that it disagrees with Apple and intends to "fully defend itself." Apple alleges 20 instances of patent infringement, most regarding the iPhone. Will Apple win this fight?

Details Emerge On Apple's iPad

As Apple gets set to ship its iPad tablet computer, new details about it are appearing. It will work with MS Exchange for email, and the iWork apps will allow you to export Word documents. Is anybody actually going to use the iPad as a business tool?

Is Wikipedia's Deletionism Out Of Control?

Wikipedia has become famous, or perhaps infamous, for its intolerance of new content, reports OStatic. The relentless pursuit of deleting content because someone unfamiliar with a topic decides that it's not "notable" enough is out of control, says the report. Are people deleting wildly on Wikipedia?

Kindle Software Arrives For the Mac

It's been teased for a fairly long time now, but Amazon finally released its Kindle software for the Mac. Amazon must've seen the writing on the wall following the iPad announcement, and realized that joining Apple would be considerably more productive than attempting to beat it.
